All you have to do is "Push the Button," and tbe whistle does the rest. Automo bilists will find tbis an excellent de vice as it does away entirely with the necessity of rubber bulbs and tubes which make it necessary to remove tbe band from tbe operating levers at a critical time when the guiding of a machine safely tbrougb a mix-up is of as much importance as blowing the horn and often more so. With tbe new electrophone all tbe energy re quired is three dry battery ceils and tbe control of tbe whistle Is by a small push button, placed convenient to tbe use of one linger only or several but tons can be placed in different parts of tbe carriage or boat, available for use by any of the occupants.
